I've been in the workforce for a very long time and have had many training sessions/opportunities. This course was hands down the best. The presentation, the trainer [David Freund], the facility, all of it. I'm excited, even at age 60, to put it to use in our business. AND this course was the most fun I have ever had in a training environment. Actually going to miss it!

This workshop was such a wonderful introduction to Conflict Resolution. I would recommend this workshop to anyone who may need to work on their conflict management skills all the way up to high-level leaders. The material is extremely relatable and is definitely worth the time and investment. I look forward to working with Laura and the MACNY team more in the future.

If you are involved in training at any level of your organization and are looking to become ISO certified, [Developing and Implementing an Effective Training and Competency System] training is a must have! I took it to brush up on my skills as a trainer but definitely worth the time to organize training needs within your organization. Tara is an interactive instructor with a wealth of knowledge. Thank you MACNY for putting this together!
I attended the Mastering Emotional Intelligence program led by David Freund at the end of 2021. Although individuals could find a book on their own to take an emotional intelligence self-appraisal, David’s insights into both the process and the results are truly invaluable. The essence of this course is understanding our ability to recognize/understand emotions in ourselves and others, and David went beyond just the PowerPoint slides, providing us with real-world examples from his past along with working through our sharing of examples. It was interactive, engaging, and very beneficial.

Through the Mastering Emotional Intelligence Level 1 course, I recognized the value of understanding my emotions and behaviors and those of others. I feel more prepared to manage more difficult emotions and conversations. I enjoyed having the workbook as a guide for the next steps and the opportunity to share experiences. I would highly recommend this course!
The Set Up for Success in 2022 training with MACNY helped me prepare for a more productive year as well as provided me with new tools and strategies to process some larger challenges that I was facing. I implemented some new strategies that have improved my time management specifically with e-mails and have improved my productivity.
